In the days before there were hens or even chickens, there was an egg.
Sometime, forgotten years ago or unknown years hence, a fragile adventurer sets out on a valiant quest. The path ahead lies shadowed with menace. Will Albuman prevail?
Like the fragile hero in a jerky old movie, Albuman stumbles through an increasingly menacing landscape. With the forest-dwelling bird, Ovatia, as his companion, he finally confronts the evil Albuminoid and is reunited with his own kind.
With the atmosphere of a mediaeval tale, a touch of gothic horror and a shade or two of teenage mutant ninja turtles, 'Albuman's Quest' combines photography, sculpture, watercolour painting and jewellery. The characters in this picture book to tantalise older readers were originally created from eggs, doll's eyes and antique cutlery.
